    or maybe that wasn't his point? i dunno-maybe he'll come back and tell us.

    i'd like health insurance reform, but the ongoing clusterfuck in washington doesn't seem likely to get it right. we have mandatory insurance here in mass and it's driving costs through the roof.

    free? through private charities, yes?

    cause mine is $600 a year between the mammogram and sonogram. I get back almost nothing from my insurance company.

    yes. is the method of service delivery the issue or is it just that the services are delivered by whatever means? i'm not trying to be antagonistic, btw.

    I don't think the solution is further federal involvement.

    Rather, the solution is local clinics and state-run programs to provide emergency care and regular checkups/ preventive care to the poor at little or no cost.
